Dawn of a New Era by kohu-arts Dawn of a New Era by kohu-arts
:points: commission for :iconnaomias123:, this is their character Kavu, son of Kovu and Kiara. I'm really happy with how this one came out. :)

Did this while watching Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. I need to do horse art soon.

I do too, Naomias did a really nice job in his design. <3

I would say so too. You can easily distinguish the similarities of both Kovu and Kiara from his physical appearance. Did Naomias come up with the name "Kavu" as well?

can i ask how you did the simba wind?

kohu-arts Featured By Owner May 30, 2012
Yup! I just made a few layers over everything else, inked, colored, and shaded the leaves, then combined those few layers and used a blur filter (in PhotoShop) over it. I then manually went back and blurred (using the blur tool in PhotoShop) some of the leaves at the bottom of the picture. ^^

I love that movie but I cry alot during it... :ashamed: lol.
Beautiful pic of Kavu. He looks bulky like Mufasa did in the torso which is an interestingly-possibly carried on trait from Kiara perhaps? :meow: I like it :la:

:iconkohu-arts:
kohu-arts Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
lol, it's okay. ;) Mufasa's death still gets me teary-eyed, I just feel so bad for Simba.

And thanks! Naomias did a really good job designing him, I love how he takes after his parents/grandparents/great-grandparents. :)
